4 Learning How to Read Activities for toddlers by TwoPlusCute

Last Wednesday, I told you how I came up with an idea to use our personalized chalk board for a “learn to read” game. That one idea produced two more and then, The Cute came up with the fourth idea.

Pen and paper work just fine but, the magnetic letters add a tactile dimension to the learning games – besides the visual and the auditory (from spelling out loud the letters and the formed words).

Without further ado, Wednesday’s mini post is about 4 learning activities inspired by a small DIY.

Personalized Magnetic Board and a Game by TwoPlusCute

We have this nice double surface board from Melissa & Doug but the primary colors didn’t really do it for me. And I do not know why but, lately I have this urge to personalize everything generic and make it “ours”. So, I grabbed the board and turned it into a kitchen menu board for The Cute’s play kitchen.

Enter the DIY bookcase ledges. A project so simple that I was bound to make it difficult.

For one, I nailed the 5 ledges twice. Because the first time, even with my painstaking attention to detail, my brain was – apparently – in a completely different dimension than the rest of me and so, I nailed every.single.ledge, wrong.

TwoPlusCute visiting Yankee Candle Santa's village

Few things get one in the spirit of the Christmas holidays, like visiting a well done Santa village. A well known candle factory, based in western Ma creates a sparkly and fun experience for anyone that loves Christmas. Toddlers, children and…tall children (that’s us – grown ups) alike, get thrilled with the trains, the rotating trees, the sparkly ornaments and the enticing smells all around.

This is not an affiliate post. Hubby took me and The Cute for a surprise drive to Yankee Candle village and we took a few photos to show you a few glimpses of how entertaining it is.
